Pope Francis and Gay Civil Unions

I have been asked to share my thoughts on the “off the cuff” statements Pope Francis recently made on gay civil unions during a documentary film. Since the Leftist news-media has seized this opportunity to push the homosexual agenda even further, and some Evangelical Protestants are reacting with hysteria, this is probably a good time […]

When Peter has Fallen

What do we call it when a pope doesn’t act like a pope? That’s something modern Catholics struggle with, because for over a century, we’ve had some pretty good popes, including a few Saints! Catholics haven’t had to deal with corrupt popes, or even heretical popes, in a very long time. It’s been centuries. So […]

Reflections on Querida Amazonia

Pope Francis’ apostolic exhortation on the Amazon Synod has been released. Titled Querida Amazonia, the document proved to not be the bombshell Faithful Catholics were so worried about. While not on the caliber of anything we would expect from Pope St. John Paul II, or Pope Benedict XVI, and it does have some problems in […]

Understanding Terms: Christian, Catholic & Protestant

This morning I read an article (see here) that made me laugh, because it relayed a story about a cardinal in the Catholic Church who doesn’t seem to understand some very basic terms. He suggested that Catholics who protest some actions of the pope ought to become Protestants, because that’s what they essentially are. I […]

Rome Will Have to Choose

There are two polarities in the Catholic Church today, and while these two polarities have existed together under the popes for a generation, that tension will not last much longer. This is nothing new. Situations like this have existed in the past, and the result is always the same — schism. Honestly, I don’t know […]

POPE’S AMAZON SYNOD DOCUMENT COMING SOON

As we approach the release of Pope Francis’ Amazon Synod Exhortation (late January or early February), it’s very important to keep your eye on the ball. The objective of the looney Left is to portray traditional Catholics as hysterical retrogrades who cannot handle any change. We MUST NOT let this narrative play out. As I […]

Saturnos For Priests

A cappello romano or saturno (because its appearance is reminiscent of the ringed planet Saturn) is a hat with a wide, circular brim and a rounded crown worn outdoors by Catholic clergy when dressed in a cassock. Along with the biretta, it’s become very popular in the United States among priests who wear cassocks. Many of […]

My Thoughts on Pope Francis

In a recent jet-presser at 30,000 feet, Pope Francis commented that he felt “honored” that some traditional-Catholic Americans were attacking him. Why does this not surprise me? It seems obvious to me that he doesn’t care for those Catholic Americans who consider themselves “orthodox” or “traditional.” On the flip side, I think it’s fair and […]

A Game of Chicken

It appears that what we have going on here is an ecclesiastical game of “chicken.” Bonn and Rome are on a head-on collision course, and both are waiting to see who turns first. The objective of the German Bishops Conference in Bonn is to set the agenda for radical changes in the German Church BEFORE […]

The Catholic Left is Trying to Provoke Schism

In a recent plane interview here, Pope Francis may have inadvertently shown the cards of the Catholic Left. He spoke of a “schism” brewing among conservative Catholics in the United States, and then (almost in a provocative way) he said he’s not afraid of it. Now that’s not to say Pope Francis actually wants a […]

Evangelical Questions About Pope Francis

Living in the Ozarks, which is deep within the Bible Belt, I tend to get a lot of questions from local Evangelicals about Pope Francis. Lately, I’ve been hit with many, in rapid fire, and they’re not the good kind of questions. Much of this has been brought on by news reports concerning the Holy […]

What If the Pope Commits Heresy?

Sadly, we now live in a time when this is a very relevant question. Since the election of Pope Francis, the issue has come to the forefront of religious discussion among orthodox Catholics who are “red pilled” or “woke” to the problems in the Catholic Church. Early in the Francis pontificate, from March of 2013 […]

Where Do We Go From Here?

So it’s official now. Everything is a mess. The Catholic Church is in complete and total chaos. Civil war is erupting among the bishops. Some bishops are about to go under federal investigation. Some are trying to get out of the country. The pope has been credibly accused of knowingly covering-up, and even rewarding, a […]

Catholic Sex Scandal: An Explanation and Warning to Protestants

Since I happen to live in the Bible Belt of the United States, I am surrounded by Evangelicals and Baptists all the time. So if you happen to be an Evangelical, Baptist, Charismatic or Pentecostal Christian, this essay is for you. Other Protestants may find this interesting as well, and I’m sure some non-Christians may […]

Catholicism versus Hyper-Papalism

There is a word in the Catholic lexicon, and most Catholics are unfamiliar with it. It’s called ultramontanism. Briefly, the word means “beyond the mountains” and it’s a European reference to the Italian Alps that act as a natural northern border between Italy and the rest of Europe. Following the Protestant Revolution, wherein great portions […]

An Open Letter to Pope Francis

Your Holiness, I entered the Catholic Church in the year 2000 as an Evangelical convert through Anglicanism, and I come from a family line of Protestants that stretches back 500 years to the days of Martin Luther and Henry VIII. Words cannot describe the joy I felt on the Easter Vigil of 2000, upon being […]

Against Communism, Socialism and Marxism

The Catholic Church has always condemned Socialism (state ownership of business & industry) and Communism (the total elimination of all private property). It is impossible for any Catholic to remain in good standing while subscribing to these political systems that are part of a greater materialistic ideology called Marxism. This is a truth that needs […]
